New Joint: Dwele “What’s Not To Love” (Written/Produced by Mike City)

[audio:http://www.ykigs.com/548.mp3] I’m feelin this new song from Dwele, in my opinion this definitely has single potential! Right now he’s preparing the follow up to his 2008 album “Sketches of a Man” which will be called W.W.W. (Wants World Women) and…

Classic Vibe: The Roots "You Got Me" featuring Erykah Badu & Eve (1999)

New Joint: Toni Braxton “Why Won’t You Love Me” (Produced by Harvey Mason Jr.)

Classic Vibe: Jesse Powell "You" (1998)

I was talking to someone recently about r&b artists that basically disappeared and one name that came up was Jesse Powell. As a result, I thought I’d do some investigating by starting out with his biggest hit “You.” He has…

New Video: Erykah Badu "Window Seat"

Very interesting and shocking video for Erykah Badu’s “Window Seat” single. You can tell she’s really trying to make a statement with the video, and then speaks her two cents at the end to clarify her intentions. I enjoy when…
